Urban Sketchers Moleskine Notebook

What sketcher hasn't heard of Moleskine? We're delighted to say that the notebook brand popular among artists, designers and creative types will provide a custom Urban Sketchers Moleskine to each Symposium participant.

The large-size Japanese notebook includes an Urban Sketchers logo embossed on the cover, a custom paperband and a full-color brochure with Symposium and Urban Sketchers information. Symposium presenter Simo Capecchi of Naples and Italian graphic designer Franco Lancio volunteered their time to create the notebook's design. It looks fabulous!

Lancio is also the creator of our logo, which shows a sketchbook with random windows -- a symbol of the mess of a city and the sketchers' different points of view.

We are thrilled with Moleskine's support of our first educational initiative and look forward to filling the special notebooks with sketches during the Symposium.
